Based on the true story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was wrongfully sentenced to death in Texas for a gruesome triple homicide, this powerful film was directed by Edward Zwick (Blood Diamond, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back), written by Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Fletcher (2009, Best Adapted Screenplay, Precious), and stars Jack O’Connell, Academy Award® nominee Laura Dern (2014, Best Suporting Actress, Wild), Emily Meade, and Jeff Perry.

In 1992, Cameron Todd Willingham (Jack O’ Connell), a poor, uneducated heavy metal devotee with a violent streak, was convicted of arson-related triple homicide and put on death row. Trial by Fire is the true-life Texas story of the unlikely bond that formed between Willingham and Elizabeth Gilbert (Laura Dern), a Houston mother of two, who battled against the state for 12 years to try and save Willingham by exposing suppressed evidence and illogical conclusions.
